Yes, it’s another shameless plug for my Facebook Group.
See, I’ve just been to Worthing in Sussex, and bought £1,500+ of very hard to come by models. Specifically, those reserved for Store relocations and brand new ‘foundings’.
That’s the Terminator Captain, Terminator Chaplain, Leena Stormspire and Berek The Indomitable.
How hard to come by? Go check eBay. Right now. Go on.
Yeah. that hard to come by. You can tell by the price.
But through the group I founded (and am immensely proud of), you have a chance to get them at retail, plus PayPal fees and P&P.
See, Looting is all about getting the goodies to the good. And not charging any kind of premium. This is but one of many Lootin’ opportunities I’ve exploited as an individual. Why? Nobody likes a scalper. They’re an absolute plague, and simply awful.
Within the group, those requesting loot are free to tip. Of course they are. But for those doing the Lootin’? No asking for a tip. Because that’s just Scalping by any other name. For those, as I did today, making a Loot specific trip, travel costs can be made public. But like tips, contributions are strictly optional.
I’ve been running the group for a couple of years now, and it’s all going swimmingly. Only had a couple (literally no more) of deals go tits up. And that’s a testament to us as a collective of Hobbyists.
So, if this sounds like your bag, either as a Looter or Lootee, see my sit for a link.
And if (entirely understandably) your social media platform adverse? You can do this on the small scale. For instance, the Modquisition, entirely reasonably and rationally, don’t allow me to do a Loot thread here on Dakka. After all, they don’t know me from Adam, and only have my word that I’m not a rip off merchant.
But if you’ve got coin to spare, and the opportunity, you can do this for yourself. Buy the model, post in the relevant trading forum, and pass it on At Cost.
Because the ‘warm and fuzzies’ of getting goodies to the good is frankly priceless.
